THE STORY:

I am a bike enthusiast and I love helping people. Therefore, no better way to combine both than be a part of "Bike for KF". Being raised in Lusaka, Zambia, a lot of the beneficiaries of KF scholarships are those that grew up in neighbourhoods I was surrounded by. Having been a part of several organizations and groups geared towards helping the less fortunate, KF is providing an oppotunity, if not better, providing HOPE for those beneficiaries to make something out of their lives.

This year, KF has 32 students on scholarships at some of Lusaka’s best secondary schools. KF also has alumni across the globe studying at universities and programs in the US, UK, India, South Africa, Costa Rica and of course many in Zambia. This bike ride will allow KF to open doors of opportunity for an even greater number of deserving young people.

With the help of you my family and friends, I hope to raise enough money to contribute towards a scholarship of a KF beneficiary. I will be riding the 60 mile route. Donate today, and together, let us make a brighter future. We’re looking to make this the biggest and best event yet so please feel free to share this with any and all!  Thank you very much for your support of our riders!

My name is Julius Mbuga, the admissions officer at EARTH University. I had a first-hand opportunity to visit Kucetekela Foundation scholarship program in Lusaka during my recruitment campaign for EARTH University in March 2014. I loved the holistic approach to everlasting change they use for deserving but financially disadvantaged Lusaka youths. KF not only throws scholarships and sits back. They also provide mentorship on life building skills, encourage reading and provide academic support, engage scholars in internships, connect them with the best Universities and follow up to establish a life-long relationship. This is the real change we want for Africa. People with a life-long commitment to other people. KF you are an example for real change in Africa. Your impact is life lasting. EARTH University is blessed to partner with you for change. 5 years ago
